Energy chain specialist Igus specialises cables and cable-carrying equipment and can design, build and deliver a pre-assembled ‘Ready Chain’ system to customers’ exact specifications.

Igus Ready Chains offer flexibility and recent projects range from simply cables with the connectors already attached to a fully harnessed system comprising of the energy chain, cables, connectors and other necessary components such as fittings and linear slide bearings.

There is a short delivery time on all these systems as Igus can deliver 850 Chainflex cables and 3500 connectors ex-stock.

This means that a basic Ready Chain system can be shipped in as little as 48 hours and a large project in three to 10 days, depending on size.

All Igus Ready Chain systems are thoroughly checked and the company can guarantee the system for a long period of maintenance-free operation, to an agreed specification.

In addition to supplying a fully assembled cable-carrying system Igus also has a team of experts that offer a professional, fault-free assembly service.

These specialists deliver the assembled system, and simply unroll it and install onsite.

The Igus installers are fully trained, so the time it takes to fit such a system is reduced, cutting downtime and keeping production loss to a minimum.

Igus Ready Chain systems are suitable for a range of harsh environments, including damp conditions such as those found on dockside cranes and train wash systems, and in dirty locations.

Igus

Igus is the largest producer of reinforced plastic energy chains and injection-moulded polymer bearings. The range of polymer bearings includes Iglidur plain, Igubal spherical and Drylin linear bearings. They offer an excellent price-to-life relationship and are developed under the toughest conditions. They are oil, maintenance and lubrication free, low wear, resistant to dirt and dust, corrosion free and simple to fit. Igus also has the data to precisely predict the lifetime of these bearings within a specific application.

Energy chains are the umbilical cord of modern machines. They minimise downtime and protect, support and extend the service life of cables and hoses. The broad range incorporates more than 30,000 innovative, low-cost products. From the smallest ‘micro’ chain to the largest chain in the world, the E4.350, Igus energy chains are capable of long and short travel distances at high speeds in all axes.

Igus also has its own cable series, Chainflex, specially designed with energy chains in mind. They are highly flexible cables, offering a long service life and very small bending radii. A wide range is available, from small signal cables to large power cables, high-speed data cables and glass fibre-optic cables.

The company’s energy chains and Chainlflex cables can be delivered as a fully harnessed and pre-assembled Readychain system, cutting purchasing, warehousing and installation costs.
